Colt has a remarkable ability to enjoy life more than most, despite being deaf and blind. Who among us could say we would have the same attitude given the same circumstances.
I just met one of our newest Straydog members this weekend. His name is Kobe. I heard he just needs patience and understanding. Something connects me with Kobe. Maybe it is because I myself at times need patience and understanding too. Kobe greeted me as I walked into his kennel to meet him with a toy. We played fetch. We played rope. He is a ball of energy. He watched as I raked his kennel and changed his water in hopes of me throwing his ball one more time before I moved to the next kennel. After throwing his ball one last time I got down on Kobes level, told him he was a good boy and gave him some lovings as he leaned into them. I cannot wait to spend more time getting to know Kobe boy.
I been working on different sections of kennels lately and I haven’t been able to caregive Ricki in a while, but today I was finally able to and I was so happy, and so was he! He loves his tummy brushed and I love brushing this boy. My sweet handsome boy!
Today I chose Cesar, he's blind but loves playing with his ball. Cesar gets so excited when he hears his ball make a sound. He's fun to play with. He loves to play while we are cleaning his kennel, during caregiving time, in the park, while we feeding, it doesn’t matter what time of the day it is or what we are doing, he just loves to play with that ball.
Today was a great day. We want to thank JP for coming to get a lot of shots, videos and photos to help us do a movie clip of Straydog. This will help us help introduce Straydog to new supporters and to spread the word of our shelter! He even brought a drone, scary but neat!! JP got to visit with Simba and Brandy, two new rescues that we had helped him take in. We also want to thank Ms. Pam and two great ladies, Patty & Kim. Thank you ladies, our doggies enjoined y’alls visit (specially Jack-Jack, Al, the Gang, Newly, Pinky and Lucy) Very proud of our crew, our day went smooth and good, a lot was accomplish!
